Get Your Kraut On UC’ers!


So if you’re currently eating sauerkraut, or if you have been/are interested in ways to get some probiotics into your system, make sure your sauerkraut has not been pasteurized and/or heated up.  For example, when I make a meal and I want to add sauerkraut, I usually cook some in a pan with some water, so its warm, but then I also add some fresh/raw sauerkraut on top afterwards with some of that nice raw sauerkraut juice that’s filled with probiotics.  And if you want to get even a bit more crafty, no reason you can’t make this stuff on your own.  All you need is cabbage and salt and some containers to let it ferment.

Here is a raw sauerkraut I just found on

have a great day and rest of the week!

    What about drinking the water of sauerkraut ??? I think it contains the most of nice probiotics, right?

      Hey Sergey,

      Funny you should ask that question. At a Wednesday Farmer’s Market in Santa Cruz, CA ( a few weeks back) I asked the people from the company who make the kraut I had in the bag in the video that very question. The guy there told me it was more or less the same in terms of probiotic content, but he didn’t have any hard facts/data to show me on the topic. Funny enough, they also sold shots of the “kraut brine” which is what you’re referring to. I put one down for a dollar, tasted super salty but was nice. Best of luck Sergey with your kraut adventures!

    There are a ton of videos on Youtube for making your own kraut. I’ve had homemade and it is super!

    Thanks to the good people of Poland coming to the UK, I have now managed to find saukeraut in shops here.

    I’m starting gently as with all probiotics apparently. The 1st go was a bit strange down there though could have been from something else. Hope to be making my own soon.

    Cheers Adam!

    I am in my second flare of the year, this time with only one month of remission in between. I had a tablespoon of sauerkraut juice this morning and this afternoon and my pain has disappeared and I had my first semi soft movement in 3 weeks. I’ve been looking for a cheaper way to get probiotics, especially since I can’t tolerate dairy at all, so this is a lifesaver for me!
